Mary 'Party Train's Over Here' Hynes to Help Conduct Metro Board

Hey Yupette,

Chris Zimmerman finally had it with WMATA. He's leaving to focus on making Arlington Metropolis on the Potomac, beginning with the EFC Tysons III mega-development and the $300 million Crystal City and Columbia Pike trolleys. Every month another unpleasant surprise from WMATA. And Zimmerman responded every time by 'putting lipstick on a pig'....more cosmetics like station improvements. He never responded to basic capacity needs, Metrorail is a 2-track system, but voted to construct hundreds of new buildings in the Metrorail corridors. After years of ignoring capacity issues he recently began to be concerned.

Will Mary Hynes be any better on the WMATA Board? Yes. If she focuses on getting the partiers to the party.

You knew it was time for Zimmerman to leave the WMATA Board when, on Tuesday, he had one of his pet activists introduce a plan for a shuttle bus to run from Courthouse to DC to alleviate Orange Line overcrowding. Of course what the County Board actually voted was $882,000 for station improvements.

Metrorail Blue-Orange Lines were a perfectly adequate subway system...in 1980.

Zimmerman was not going to stick around on the WMATA Board until the Silver Line opened.

No 8-car trains? And they won't increase the number of taxicabs?

A group of citizens from across the County is calling for an immediate and total moratorium on any new development.

Time for Zimmerman to retire from the County Board. Check out Columbia Pike traffic between 4 PM and 7 PM weekdays.

Mary will hold 'citizen facilitation meetings' regarding Metrorail improvements at Whitlows. County Board will award a grant to Whitlows to provide unlimited Guinness drafts to attendees.

Zimmerman will make you WANT to ride a bicycle from the Pentagon to Barcroft when it's 9 degrees and snowing once he's through f-ing up the Pike with trolleys and traffic.

Mary led the County Board in a 3 1/2 marathon discussion of restaurant seating earlier this year.
